Designing the shirts I envisioned the portrait of an interesting female personality on whose face (eyes and mouth) I superimposed parts of several other female faces. I found additional inspiration in African face paintings of the chin and the cheeks in particular.
In many African countries tattoos tell about social affiliation and status within a tribe. They function as cultural and religious motives, are worn as a kind of make-up or stress one’s beauty. Colour, too, is of certain significance.
To cover the hair, I used the winding technique of the Tuareg – a Berber people. According to the Tuareg fabric’s delicacy I did not leave anything to chance: like the Aleschu the shirt should be of a soft and pleasant material.
The 3 WOMEN SHIRT is statement-shirt for self-conscious women, who are committed to their own concerns while showing taste and style.
